I am the good shepherd. I know my sheep, as the Father knows me. And my sheep know me. Joh 10:14
The shepherd knows his sheep. He calls them by name.
When we see a crowd, we see exactly that, a crowd… We see people, not persons, but people. A herd of humans. A flock of faces. That's what we see.
But not so with the Shepherd. To him every face is different. Every face is a story. Every face is a child. Every child has a name…
The shepherd knows his sheep. He knows each one by name. The Shepherd knows you. He knows your name. And he will never forget it.
